Spring brings our annual collaboration with the Hills Garden Club of Wellesley, when garden club members create floral arrangements inspired by the Wellesley Historical Society's collection. The Hills Garden Club of Wellesley chose “Houses at Marblehead” by Mary Brewster Hazelton as inspiration for the floral arrangements at their 2017 annual meeting. Kathleen Fahey, Curator of the Wellesley Historical Society was on hand to speak to the WHGC about the history of the 1931 oil painting and Hazelton, (1868-1953) who was a distinguished Wellesley artist known for her portraiture, landscapes, and murals. Each arrangement beautifully incorporated Hazelton’s interest in color, natural light and use of the impressionist style.
